Mmm… So I bought a 250g bag of this for my parents for Christmas. I finally convinced Mum to let me make it for our evening, post-dinner tea (she’s utterly enarmored by Suki Tea’s divine Spiced Citrus blend, so we’ve had little else recently – it’s understandable, though). She was a little reluctant on smelling the dry leaves (though I think the powerful, grapefruit aroma is divine, she wasn’t convinced). But when I added the water and let it brew, she was quickly converted.
I really cannot stress how exceptionally citrussy and magnificently sweet this tea is. It’s just unbelievably good. I used 3 tsp in about 700 ml and brewed for no more than two minutes. The liquor was perfection – no bitterness, mouthwatering citrus astringency and a delicious, fresh-fruit sweetness.
This is still my all-time favourite Earl Grey. I’m not sure it’ll ever be surpassed.
